. this is something i talked to george mitchell about this. remember he was who president obama appointed to be the envoy for the middle east peace process in 2009. he had said this was a concern and you do feel it, which is because there actually hasn't been any skirmishes in a while, there's almost a sense of they have been lulled into a sense of, well, okay, maybe this is a way that we can live this way, both sides. and abbas, because he doesn't have the credibility and the -- with hamas and able to negotiate for all palestinian people, you know, does he really want to sit at the table because maybe he can't negotiate a peace or he can't fully negotiate a peace. that said, it does sound like netanyahu wants to give obama this. he knows it's important to president obama to do something like this. and if netanyahu wants president obama to have his back on iran, then he wants to be able to give him something on getting the peace process started. but you heard it, chris. they're still trying to negotiate the terms of the negotiations. and the president is trying to say, hey, to the palesti
global warming are going to hurt american suburbs because the obama administration believes in something called smart growth. the idea of smart growth policies is, get out of your car, don't move to the suburbs, you should live in a tiny densely packed apartment building in the city where you can walk and take public transportation and don't drive. that's smart growth. and the obama administration is gearing up to impose the smart growth on the country and that would be bad for america's suburbs. >> megyn: how would they do it, make us move from the suburbs to the city? most of the people who live in the suburbs like the suburbs and don't want to live in the city. how would they make us do it it? >> several plans, part is to stop people from moving to the suburbs in the first place and in the end it might get people who live in suburbs to head to the cities. last week the energy department released a series of reports that touted a new strategy for cutting back on carbon dioxide emissions. the idea to make all federal funding conditional on adherence to the smart growth principles. let's
. barack obama banked something yesterday. he invested, if you will, he met b.b. halfway when he didn't have to and it will help him in the long run in managing this relationship. this relationship has changed the last couple of months because of the political fortunes of b.b. went down or barack obama went up. so barack obama was gracious. he went there but in the funny sort of way it shifted. >> as much as the israel relationship is important to the united states, it is the case that we are the dominant partner in this bilateral relationship always because of the security we led israel and amount of foreign aid we give israel and the defense cooperation, all of that stuff. so it seems to me at least what has changed is that as much as barack obama needs israel and the way joe said israel needs the united states to be standing four square against iran and going into the future. that's a play, a need that netanyahu clearly has as you pointed out what the israel public wants from him. >> the most confrontational i remember is george bush the father and several months later -- israel pe
of leno. he has something to say about president obama. >> president obama is now in israel. it is his first trip to israel as president. he did not bring along joe biden. the president trip to israel is called a high profile trip. not as high profile as playing golf with tiger woods but still high profile. it's not that great. >> kimberly: all right. too conservative? what that is what some suggest. >> eric: someone tweeted maybe he's pulled off because he is focusing his comedy toward the center part of the country, rather than the two coasts which are more liberal. i don't know. maybe. johnny carson, every single late night host goes after the president. i don't know why we are calling him out for going after obama. >> greg: it's a disgrace that none of the jokes involve sarah palin. habit he read the script? that -- hasn't he read the script? that's what you. do make fun of sarah palin, someone not a president, exgovernor of alaska. that is the person you go after. not after obama. i have to go back to this. i don't care who is at late night. i have a feeling that most young americ
it is dead on arrival, we know it is a pretend vote. here is speaker boehner reacting to something president obama was cause saying on his arrival in israel today. >> i would rather be heckled than ignored. you only tease the ones you love. >> he is willing to more than tease the ones he love. >> apparently republicans are willing to tease various parts of the base to make them think we have a plan. it is really not much of a plan, it is kind of the part of the problem they don't seem to understand, the policies don't match up with what they say their values are. that's the problem. instead, what they say is let's not talk about those things, those things, those value voter things that get us in trouble, let's not talk about rape and all of that messy stuff, and then fool people. that's the real joke. >> listen to rush limbaugh's take on the new rebranding of the republican party. >> they go out, lose elections and blame everybody else. they're running the party, we're not. safe to say? i mean, they're getting the nominees they want, and losing, and it is our fault for being exclusive? we're
want to see. >> i remember that guy. that's hope and change obama. i know hope and change obama. i covered him in 2008. so is this just words about what hillary clinton once said about candidate obama or is there something concrete that is going to happen here? >> there is something concrete. sometimes as americans we may not fully appreciate the impact of when an american president goes to another nation. in this case a small nation, a nation that has fears at times, isn't always so confident. and when that president looks in the eye of 8 million israelis and he says, be proud, israel, you are the strongest country in the middle east, and also be very confident because the strongest nation on earth, we have an unbreakable bond with you. and you need to figure out, what he essentially said to israel's young people, how can you be democratic, how can you be a jewish state which you must be, but, also, how do you deal with the issue of the palestinian right of self-determination, i mean challenge the israeli young people to take action relative to politics in a very effective way. >>
in the president obama administration. >> this is something that president clinton really focused on. a lot of progress was made. we saw in president obama's first term a reluctance to dive into this. maybe because he couldn't find a solution. he left most of this to secretary of state hillary clinton. now i think this trip is to sort of shore up and do some of the things he couldn't get done in that first term and show israel we are really there for him. it's been a successful trip so far for him. >> you have spent a lot of time in the region. what's the significance of john kerry being there before the president and staying there after the president leaves. >> i think it shows this is more than just a photo-op. the white house is trying to downplay expectations but at the same time, they're laying the groundwork for greater involvement and more discussions. we will see if the secretary of state is able to achieve anything after the president leaves. let me ask you this. when we were in break, you expressed skepticism about this kind of process. not the sort of thing you want to hear from
the situation is when pelosi said obama never did anything for political reasons, i had to get up and defend that, which is not easy. when harry says something like, this when you might not disagree about his connection there, but none the less, the timing was terrible. those are the kind of things that indicate to me these are people who don't have a political ear on the ground of what's going on in this country. that you have to do. these are very difficult political times. >> bill: all right so you say you are saying that the democratic leadership on the hill on capitol hill, is a c. >> i would say that yeah. compared to other ones that i have worked with. >> bill: why? why isn't it more vibrant than -- because i agree with you. i would give reid a d and pelosi probably a c minus. do you know pelosi by the way in the run-up to the iraq war was for removing saddam hussein? did you know that? i read that the "wall street journal" today. >> i know. a lot of people were. i was not. >> bill: she was. hillary was. i thought that was pretty interesting. >> badly informed. you know, the answer, i
appreciate it. >> thank you, jenna. jon: well, it is no surprise that president obama wants to achieve something no president has ever done, retake full control of congress in a midterm. we're going to look at how one highly-respected forecaster has some predictions about the 2014 midterms. an eye-opening look at the road ahead for both parties in the next election. that's three minutes away. >>> also jurors in the jodi jodi arias murder trial are getting another chance to ask questions. it is not jodi they'll be grilling. who they want to know more from and what it could signal about the outcome of the case, coming up. [ kate ] many women may not be absorbing the calcium they take as well as they could because they don't take it with food. switch to citracal maximum plus d. it's the only calcium supplement that can be taken with or without food. my doctor recommends citracal maximum. it's all about absorption. could lose tens of thousands of dollars on their 401(k) to hidden fees. thankfully e-trade has low cost investments and no hidden fees. but, you know, if you're still bent on bl
you something. how much will they get done? >> they won't get much of anything done other than the symbolism. obama will tell netanyahu unpleasant things, but you won't hear a word of it. it will be pictures of them joking around and yucking it up. it will be in their political advantage to do it. >> speaking of something you said. isn't it like mom and dad putting on a good show for the kids, but secretly they are going to get divorced? >> i don't think it was a compliment to begin with. if you threw a party and invited everyone you knew, you would see the biggest gift is from me. and they would say, thank you for being a friend. subtext, bring me a present, obama. in conclusion evie is greedy and blamp -- and blanch was a whore. >> you are saying that because you dated bea arthur in the 80s and there was a lot of strive. >> let it be. >> let it be indeed. she was quite the tumbler. she was into gym that is sticks. gymnastics. i loved bea arthur. but i wasn't crazy for maud. >>> okay. bill will discuss his book, i do the news and do it nude. first, what is a don't feed me t-sh
. that's changing the dynamic a little bit from his perspective. that being said, i think president obama has also understood, and you saw clinton do this, secretary clinton did this, every single trip she ever did, she did something outside of the official and made a point to go talk directly to the people. and i think the president understands that he has got to go make that case and try to you know, whether it's poll numbers or what have you. build some kind of a bond with the people directly, because how you impact and are viewed by the folks outside of government will help your efforts inside of government. and he hasn't always done that. you know, the last thing i'll say on this is people see it as a sign of respect. come and talk to us. granted it was a supportive audience. but come and talk to us, show us that you care about the things that are important to our culture. to our history. george bush, remember, he was not a big fan of doing that. and it really, it was something that -- >> and also this is the president, this is president obama's first state visit to israel, right? an
in terms of what's going on in the region and continuing it being a worst region. that's something that president obama spoke to when he said that he was committed to creating a palestinian state, but stopped short of saying how much he was going to pressure the israelis in terms of making any kind of concessions. one thing they talk about here a lot is a settlement freeze, meaning the stopping of israelis building inside the lands of palestinians. a lot of people thought the president would publicly try to persuade the israelis to do that. so far we did not hear any of that. the one tone that you really took away from the meeting here, especially the one in ramallah and the press conference was that president obama did not sound optimistic in terms of restarting these. the palestinians sounded desperate and sounded frustrated as they warned that things were continuing to get worse. that's the big concern here, is that as things continue to get worse, the situation deteriorates, you could end up with something like a third popular uprising by the palestinians against the israelis a
obama are going to see 100% premium increases. >> neil: what is the $63 fee about? >> that's something that is hitting employers. a lot of surprises for employers. >> neil: a identify they have not to pay. >> just rolls out in november. among the thousands of new regulation. employers are frantic because they're coming so late in the game. le. >> neil: be part of the plan or not. but it's a fee -- >> for every employee -- every dependent who is covered with insurance. thirdly, patients are bracing for big change because this law is paid for more than half of it is paid for with medicare. so hospitals are already pulling back, laying off nurses, spreading the nursing care thinner so patients know they're going to wait longer for care. i'm already advising patients, if you know you're going into the hospital, try to cobble together enough money to hire a private duty nurse the first night when you need help. >> why do you say that? >> there will be fewer nurses on the floor and you're going to wait longer when you press the button for help. seniors are noticing the difference because the
pleas for peace and promises of support. >> president obama addressed a large auditorium of young israelis. >> i believe you will shave our future and given the ties between our countries, i believe your future is bound to ours. >> after that remark, a heckler shouted something and the president quickly recovered. >> this is part of the lively debate we talked about. this is good. [ applause ] >> in an early news conference with palestinian print abbas, he criticized israel over treatment of palestinians in the west bank. >> i have returned to the west bank because the united states is dopily -- deeply committed to a sovereign state of palestine. the palestinian people deserve an end to occupation and the daily indignities that come with it. >> the president says peace is possible. both presidents say that. >> we are ready to implement all our commitments and obligations. >> there was no peace this morning as militants fired into southern israel and palestinian protesters took to the streets claiming president obama is bias toward israel. the president began the day in jerusalem w
to own their own people. >> and to own it is to do something about it. in fact, if you look at what senator jeff sessions argued, victoria, that obama care is destroying our health care system and took issue with the notion that our health care system isn't the greatest in the world. take a listen to this. >> and for people to say our health care isn't the best in the word, why do people come here from all over the world? that is one of the most horrible things i've ever heard around here. so we've got people that die sooner than some other countries. well, we have a lot of things. we have obesity. we have more smoking. we have less people taking care of themselves sometimes. that doesn't mean our health care isn't good. >> 40 million people uninsured? you know, so what we die -- i mean, you can't obviously say with a straight face, so what we die earlier than some people. we have obesity. i mean, what is he talking about? anything rather than to give health care for everyone and to open it up for all americans? that's how they argue? >> and the irony here is that we're still paying
not fully kick in until next year. it is going to get better. >> president obama threatening syria and iran and pursuing peace in the holy land. the a-team will sort that out for us. and accusing homeland security of hiding something. and the jodi arias murder trial. this time go by the jury. we will have that next. at od, whatever business you're in, that's the business we're in with premium service like one of the best on-time delivery records and a low claims ratio, we do whatever it takes to make yourusiness our business. od. helping the world keep promises. lou: a former chinese contractor, and alleged spy of nasa, indicted on charges of lying to federal agents. he appeared in a virginia court house allegedly failing to disclose that he was carrying a laptop and two hard drives. his attorney said his client will plead not guilty after today's proceedings continue until next week. he will then ask for a jury trial. meanwhile, nasa had locked its ffcilities to foreign nationals. ordering a review of the facilities. imagine that. well, jurors got their turn to grill a key defendant in the
, families and corporate america as it stands now, healthcare costs, versus trying to implement something that is intended to reduce those costs. >> bret: i guess when you hear doctors who are opposed to obama care, or concerned about it. they talk about the $18 million added to medicaid and they talk about it already, doctor shortage and that underpayment for medicare already happens. if you think there is a shortage now, just wait until this thing kicks in in 2014. i guess that is the biggest thing you hear. >> and it points to the distinction between health insurance and real healthcare. you could have sham health insurance, a lot of americans will get. but if you don't a doctor, if doctors refuse to treat because of the payment schedules that are obscenely low that no doctor will take. already today, the medicare patients are turned away from a lot of doctors. if that is widespread there will be no real care. other thank emerging is that those of white house claimed early on it was nationalizing the healthcare, though it's disguiseed as still a private system, we are right. there will
into office in 2009, the obama administration put a great deal of emphasis on settlements, seemed to side with the palestinian view that there should be a moratorium on settlements. that was something the prime minister was willing to do for a short period of time, ten months, but was not willing to do again. there seems to be some flexibility in the palestinian position, but look, there's a real lack of trust between prime minister netanyahu and president abbas. the ability of the president to kind of bridge that gap is going to take probably months before you see potential start of negotiations. you know, the middle east peace process will consume much of the president's second term in office. >> a lot of this will depend on his relationship with both of these men, the president's relationship with both of these men. if you saw some encouraging signs with netanyahu, let me play for you what abbas had to say after what he called useful talks. let's listen. all right. we don't have it, but i'm going to read it to you. president obama said, if we're going to succeed, part of what we're goi
to latinos. >> yes 73% of asian americans, and 71% of hispanic americans voted for president obama. i think the republicans realize that unless they do something about this they will -- they will bleed even more votes from these communities. >> bill: you know, it's interesting to me -- we talk a lot about the latino vote. there's not a lot of talk about the asian american vote. why is it that 73% of asian americans would vote for president obama. >> i do believe immigration reform was large part of it. i also believe that they followed president obama's policies of economic stimulus an balanced approach, and -- of making sure that we have -- had more for hire education. >> bill: interesting, yeah so it's the policies really that they saw for president obama that they supported. and on the immigration reform do you believe that a guest worker program will be or should be part of it? i mean we talk about the path to citizenship, and i think there are some differences on that, but most people agree there has to be some path to citizenship even if it's difficult, but the

estimating the depth and length of this weak economy. in some ways the strongest argument for obama to replace him is a partisan argument. there have bn republicans this job now for more than 20 years. and i think democrats may not want the fed chairman job to be something that is seen as a republican job. now, bernanke is, of course, being criticized much more by republicans than democrats will at this point but he still is originally a republican, there are some, geithner, and summers, and including in blinder who would be serious candidates if persh key were to leave. >> rose: your thought, sir? the scuttlebutt from everybody is that he'll probably have snufafteeight years. i do believe that if he wants a third term and he asked the president for it, he'd probably get it for the reasons david said. he's done a very good-- never mind personal, never mind republican. he's just done a very good job. as david said, he's got republicans a lot angrier than teams, even though he came into this job as a bush appointee from the republican side. so i think if bernanke is an eight-year chai

to know president obama the way that i have gotten to know. i think you heard something that is very meaningful. it might have escaped you, but it has not escaped me. the president announced that in addition to all of the aid his administration is providing, including iron dome and defense funding for israel during difficult times, he as announce that we will begin talk is on another 10 year process to ensure american military assistance to israel. this is very significant. i want to express my thanks for everything you have done. i went to thank you for the statement new made. it is very important. i think israelis will judge this by the unfolding events and what is taking place. there is a very simple answer to your question, the gentleman from nbc. this is second term president and third term prime minister.
